So that is why I think the Airport could have something to do with it.Mac mini (2009), Mac OS X (10.6.3)

Currently Being ModeratedAug 24, 2010 8:11 AM (in response to hensor)It sounds like a routing problem. Or possibly a dud DNS server in the mix.
I'd suggest shutting down all the network equipment. Then slowly restart each item, starting with your cable or dsl modem and work towards the Mini as the last piece in the chain. Allow 5 minutes between each next piece you power up.
BTW is your mini connecting wired or wireless to the the router?SnoLeo 10.6.3: Mini C2D 1.83 1G; Mac Mini Server; iBook G4 800, 640M, 10.3.9, iPad 3G, NeoOffice, Firefox3.6, Thunderbird, VMWare, SwiftPublisher
Currently Being ModeratedAug 26, 2010 11:19 AM (in response to hensor)It is all browsers.
The thing I don't understand with it being a DNS problem (thought of that first) is that it's only the Mac mini which has the problem.
It is connected wireless.
I have tried restarting (and resetting) the router and only connected the Mac mini, and also connected all the other computers before and then the Mac mini. Still problems.Mac mini (2009), Mac OS X (10.6.3)
Currently Being ModeratedAug 27, 2010 12:27 PM (in response to hensor)Some news...
I've tried to change the DNS servers on the router to Googles. Nothing change there.
BUT changing it on the Mac mini (in Snow Leopard) did!
That's awesome, but I'm still wondering how this is happening as all the other computers on the network use the routers DNS fine.
Any idea?Mac mini (2009), Mac OS X (10.6.3)
Currently Being ModeratedSep 5, 2010 11:41 AM (in response to hensor)Hey did you ever figure out what the actual problem was? I'm having this exact same problem on my i7 iMac. Anything like youtube, vimeo videos, downloading via http, even browsing the net - the connection just drops for about a minute and then resumes.
What DNS settings did you change? I don't really understand how that could have any effect though. it almost seems like the airport card overheats and restarts (unlikely however as the Airport connection seems to stay on during the network stall).

126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52 fixed the problem and I haven't experienced it since.Mac mini (2009), Mac OS X (10.6.3)
